Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
Hi try putting a normal dvd film in their and see if that will play not a bluray one just normal dvd, if it will then play a normal dvd then this means you need the bluray part replacing if it dont play the dvd then the chances are you need the whole dvd drive replacing,
one thing you can try yourself is if you go to a computer hardware store and buy a cd lense cleaning disk then run this in your ps3 and that will remove any build up of dust and may get it working.
if it dont check if you have any warranty left and take it back if you do, if it has run out then you will need to find someone who can supply and fit either the new bluray or the new dvd drive as its not an easy job to do as the dvd drive has to have the firmware put on it from your ps3 as the data is unique to each ps3 made so this will need flashing onto the new dvd drive if thats what it needs.
let me know if you need further assistance ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I have also envountered problems with dogs life, my only reasonable explination is:
dogs life is most propably written on a normal CD-R,
and sometimes a chipped PS2 struggles to read CD-R games, you will also find that older PSX games wont work either, hope this is of some help.
have a blessed day.
